Kistler's daughter gets her name on the 250-case lot of 2002 Pinot Noir Occidental Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth. This wine is spectacular, and while I don't like to choose between daughters, it gets a slight nod over the Cuvee Catherine because it just seems to have a few more layers of flavor crammed into its medium to full-bodied personality. Wonderfully floral, raspberry, and kirsch notes emerge from this wine, which also shows a touch of toast, some crushed stony, rocky notes, and beautiful texture and vibrant acidity. I wouldn't be surprised to see this wine age effortlessly for 10-15 years. It is certainly a terrific Pinot Noir which, as I said last year, comes across as California's Musigny.

The 2002 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard exhibits abundant amounts of sweet, wild mountain fruit characteristics intermixed with raspberries and flowers. There is good acidity (which may help it to age unusually long), tremendous fragrance, impressive pu... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Very pure blackberry aromas, fresh and well delineated. An extremely harmonious wine displaying more mineral precision than the Hirsch. Very primary today showing the juiciness and fruit intensity of the best burgundies. Finishes extremely long, with the tannins buried under fruit. Delicious now.
